good morning to our viewers in the west. it is monday, november 12th, 2012. welcome to "cbs this morning." new details on the scandal that forced cia director david petraeus to resign. and congress demand answers about the timing of this fbi investigation. compromise on capitol hill? some republicans are saying it is time to make a deal to keep the government away from the fiscal cliff. a new report says a pilot shortage could cripple the airline industry. captain sully sullenberger says he's not buying it. we begin this morning with a look at today's eye opener. your world in 90 seconds. >> this is something that could have had an affect on national security. i think we should have been told. >> lawmakers demand answers as the petraeus scandal widens. >> the fbi discovered the affair between petraeus and his biographer, paula broadwell, while investigating harassing e-mails broadwell sent to
7:01 am
another woman. >> the private g-mail account that apparently paula broadwell had access to i think raises real security questions. >> if general petraeus was gearing up to testify concerning the deadly attacks on our u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya. >> i don't see how in the world you can find out what happened in benghazi if petraeus doesn't testify. members of congress get back to tuesday on the exact same place they left. the edge of a fiscal cliff. >> it won't kill the country if we raise taxes on millionaires. half of them voted democratic. half of them live in hollywood. in indianapolis two people were killed in an explosion that damaged 31 homes. they suspect a gas leak. >> it looked like a war zone. two weeks after superstorm sandy, 120,000 homes are facing another day without power. >> 70% have been flooded. the tide mark is at its sixth highest since records began 130 years ago. the crews are at it.
7:02 am
tempers have boiled over in phoenix. >> all that -- >> the falcons have fallen to 8 8-1. >> for the first time in four years an nfl game has ended in a tie. >> he missed it. and all that matters. >> on this day we thank all of our veterans for reminding us why america is and always will be the greatest nation on earth. >> on "cbs this morning." >> many people are saying off the record, this feels a little "homeland." the record, this feels a little "homeland." >> i'm just kidding. captioning funded by cbs welcome to "cbs this morning" on this official veterans day holiday. as you wake up in the west, one veteran is at the center of a growing scandal in washington. we have new information about the resignation of cia director
7:03 am
david petraeus. >> the retired army general admits he was having an extramarital affair. his resignation happened so fast and unexpectedly one senator said it was like a lightning bolt. bob orr begins our coverage in washington. bob, good morning to you. >> good morning, norah. good morning, charlie. sources say the sudden downfall of cia director david petraeus was rooted in jealousy. the fbi uncovered evidence of an affair between petraeus and his biographer paula broadwell after she sent harassing messages to another woman broadwell thought was too close to petraeus. sources identified the second woman as 37-year-old jill kelley of the tampa area. she's a civilian who has social connections to the u.s. central command which petraeus headed from late 2008 to mid-2010. a few months ago kelley told the fbi she had received anonymous harassing e-mails, essentially warning her to back off and stay away from my guy. agents quickly traced those e-mails to paula broadwell.
7:04 am
subsequently discovered the petraeus and broadwell extramarital affair. officials say broadwell had sent the e-mails believing kelley was a romantic rival. petraeus has told friends he had no romantic involvement with kelley and only saw her when she was with her husband. law enforcement officials say they found no evidence to refute that. and say kelley appears to be a victim in the scandal. >> when you look at that -- >> reporter: earlier this year in february, broadwell made an odd reference to petraeus as she was in the midst of a media tour while promoting the biography "all in: the education of general david petraeus." >> i think he does present a terrific role model for young people, for executives, for men and women no matter what. there's a good role model there. >> sources say when she made that comment, the affair with petraeus was ongoing. the married mother of two first met the retired four star general in 2006 and spent considerable time with him in afghanistan researching her book. but petraeus has told friends
7:05 am
their affair did not begin until after he took over the 2011. he said trysts with broadwell were infrequent. until confessing the affair to the fbi petraeus always held himself out as a family man. at his cia confirmation hearing he praised his wife holly. >> holly was recently described as being bright, nice, small and a pitbull. someone you want in your corner. >> now, the fbi investigation found only a personal drama and no security issues connected to the affair. so no charges are expected. petraeus is said to be focused for now on his family. jill kelley and her family have asked for privacy. and paula broadwell has made no comments. >> thanks. the chairman of the house homeland security committee says the timing of the resignation suggests a cover-up. petraeus was scheduled to testify to congress this week about the attack that killed the american ambassador to libya. sheryl atkyson is on capitol
7:06 am
hill. >> i spoke to several members of the house and senate last night who are confident that in the not too distant future petraeus will be asked to testify. general petraeus was scheduled to testify to congress thursday about benghazi. now acting cia director will fill that role. but republican senator lindsey graham told "face the nation" that petraeus is still the cia man who knows the most about benghazi. >> i don't see how in the world you can find out what happened in benghazi before, during and after the attack if general petraeus doesn't testify. >> reporter: dianne feinstein, the democrat who leads the senate intelligence committee, sees petraeus's resignation the friday before his scheduled appearance as coincidenccidenta doesn't rule out a future appearance. >> do you think you need to hear from petraeus. >> we may well. we may well ask. i think that's up to the committee. >> reporter: cbs news learned general petraeus visited libya at the end of october and called
7:07 am
several members of congress the week before he resigned saying that surveillance video of the benghazi attack supports an element of spontaneity as the administration first claimed. at least one republican reportedly expressed strong disapproval to petraeus over standing by that analysis. meanwhile, speaking at the university of denver last month, petraeus's biographer and alleged mistress paula broadwell revealed information about the attack that some say may indicate she was privy to sensitive information. >> i don't know if a lot of you heard this, but the cia annex had actually -- had taken a couple of libyan militia members prisoner. and they think the attack on the consulate was an effort to try to get these prisoners back. that's still being vetted. >> reporter: petraeus isn't the only high ranking official leaving his post since the benghazi assault. general carter hamm is stepping down as commander of u.s. africa command. he was in charge of military operations in the region on that night. general joseph dunford is stepping down at the marine
7:08 am
corps's second in command. the pentagon calls both moves routine successions. also the navy has replaced charles gauuette due to recent allegations of, quote, inappropriate leadership judgment not otherwise described. there's been some tension between the state department, the cia and the pentagon in recent weeks as they've worked in the words of one official to sync up their benghazi time lines. thursday the closed door hearing intelligence officials will show senators benghazi's surveillance video with a timeline for the first time. >> sharyl, thanks. retired general richard myers is cbs news' military security analyst and former chairman of the joint chiefs of staff. good morning. >> good morning, charlie. >> general myers, general petraeus served under you. you know this man well. should he have resigned? is this the kind of thing that a
7:09 am
military man should resign who is no longer serving the military, but at the cia? >> certainly if he were still in the military, yes, he should have resigned. i think anybody in charge of our nation's secrets like general petraeus was, there are a lot of folks under him to take polygraphs that try to get at are you having affairs, are you vulnerable to outside sources that could force you to leak classified information. he heads the biggest intelligence agency we have. in that regard at least the most sensitive intelligence agency. i think it's perfectly proper that he resigned. >> are you surprised by this? >> oh, absolutely. yeah. i know -- i know dave petraeus well. very surprised by this. i think resigning showed the kind of -- what he really believed in. he believes in -- in hon rationrabble public service. like all of us, you can make mistakes. he made a huge mistake. he's paying for that now.
7:10 am
he's doing exactly the right thing which is not surprising actually. >> john, let's talk about this investigation and how this began. the fbi knew about it since the summer. they interviewed paula broadwell. they then interviewed general petraeus two weeks before the election. why didn't the white house know about it? >> you know, they looked at that very carefully, which is what are our notification requirements? they even pulled out the documents and read them and said, you know, do we have a national security issue here? no. it doesn't appear we do. do we have a major security violation here? no. do we have criminal activity here? so notify them about what? >> any time -- >> in the end they notified the director of national intelligence who is up the chain of command. petraeus's essential boss. and said, here it is. now you know about it. >> but they didn't notify him until just the day before the election or the day of the election. >> that's right. and i think what you're going to see here is from the fbi's standpoint and from the
7:11 am
director's standpoint, i served under the director. he looks at two things. one, are we doing the right thing. number two, as a steward of the fbi how do we keep the fbi from being embroiled in politics unnecessarily. i think the calculus here is what is the flip side of this coin? how would this have affected the election, the white house? >> no, no, no, no. i'm interested -- this -- paula broadwell according to "the wall street journal" had access to classified information on her computer. doesn't that raise red flags. >> i think anyone who has been on the wikileaks website has classified information on their computer. the question is what was it and where did she get it. the fbi was satisfied she didn't get it from david petraeus. that may be a matter between the fbi and paula broadwell later. doesn't have much to do with this. >> i think i saw her shaking your head. you might have a different opinion. >> well, if you were -- i mean, we saw lots of investigations in the military where the allegations were not proven yet. but that the chain of command
7:12 am
was made aware that somebody was being looked at for whatever. and so to me it's a little surprising as they got into this that somebody didn't tell general clapper that, hey, we're looking at general petraeus in this area. we don't think there's anything there yet. >> wouldn't general clapper immediately go and talk to the white house chief of staff or somebody? shouldn't the president have been informed at some point even though the investigation was continuing because it's the director of the cia? >> that would not -- in my view that would not have been unusual. in the department of defense that's what would have happened. >> and it also appears that general petraeus had a private e-mail account under a pseudonym that he was using to e-mail paula broadwell and others. doesn't the cia need to know about and monitor that personal e-mail account? isn't that something you hand over as the head of cia director, general myers? >> i think what you're looking at also is the fbi -- 100 years of fbi history, more than 50 of them under director hoover where they were peaking through
7:13 am
people's key holes, blackmailing public officials by using information against members of congress and other people, they are extraordinarily cautious in this day and age to say what exactly do we have here? is it against the law? did it break the rules? is it a national security concern? when that's not there to say what are we really running around telling everybody for? >> john miller and general myers, thank you. now to the government's fiscal cliff which could happen 50 days from today. congress goes back to work tomorrow facing pressure to work out a deal preventing automatic spending cuts and tax hikes at the end of the year that could affect all of us. unlike the last budget crisis two years ago, both sides seem to be willing to compromise. bill plante is at the white house. >> reporter: there are signs of progress. but senior administration officials tell us they believe the president has only a relatively short time to get congress to agree on a solution. and that he'll campaign across the country to get support for it. >> is there the basis for a deal here? >> i absolutely believe there
7:14 am
is. i'm optimistic. >> we have the ability between now and the end of the year to not go off the cliff. >> we'll get this behind us. >> reporter: over the weekend democrats and republicans both suggested that they have the baseline for a deal. democrats seem willing to cut some entitlement spending and it appears that after losing the white house and losing members in both houses of congress, republicans are willing to negotiate on increasing revenue. >> we need more revenue in washington. we need more private sector jobs. we don't need to raise tax rates. we need to limit loopholes and deductions for the wealthy. >> reporter: the president's negotiating position expressed on friday is that he feels he now has a mandate to demand that the rich pay a higher share of taxes. >> i just want to point out, this was a central question during the election. it was debated over and over again. and on tuesday night, we found out that the majority of americans agree with my approach. >> reporter: the president and congressional republicans have r tried before and failed to solve
7:15 am
the nation's debt crisis. but speaker john boehner told house republicans that after last week's election the mandate from the american people is to work together even if it means additional revenues through tax reform. meanwhile bill kristol, editor of "the weekly standard," seemed to cave in on the president's demand that wealthy people pay more. >> you know what? it won't kill the country if we raise taxes a little bit on millionaires. it really won't, i don't think. really? t >> reporter: the president begins making his case this week. what's different this time is that administration officials are already suggesting to congress that mr. obama is willing to let the deadline pass, let tax rates go up, and spending be cut if he can't get the deal he wants. norah, charlie? >> wow. bill plante in washington, thank you. later this morning we'll ask conservative activist grover norquist if republicans are backing away from his no tax increase pledge. two weeks ago today
7:16 am
superstorm sandy battered the northeast. more than 100,000 homes and businesses still have no power. most of them are on new york's long island. and the governor of new york is now calling for an investigation as mark strassmann reports from brooklyn. residents are angry at the lack of answers. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. most hard hit areas have come a long way in the last couple of weeks. not garrison beach, brooklyn. here most people are still waiting for the power to come back on and for the insurance inspector to show up. for them, the storm goes on. two weeks after hurricane sandy hit. in a driveway of soggy possessions, we found janet bearings, rinsing saltwater from her niece's coin collection. >> i am a survivor. >> reporter: these days she's surviving on generator power and grit in brooklyn's garrison beach community. >> i have no heat. i have no electricity. it's like what do you do first? >> reporter: two weeks ago sandy flooded this community's 2,400 homes. ever since it's working class
7:17 am
residents have lived without power. >> at night, it's pitch black here. it's scary. you know, and every time a light goes by you get up, you look out the window. you really don't want to do that because you're freezing. you want to stay underneath the blankets. >> reporter: on long island frustrated residents want power and blood from lipa. the long island power authority. roundly criticized for its response to the disaster. lipa says 99% of its customers finally will be back on the grid tomorrow night. arlene ginsberg, an insurance agent and mother of two, is furious. >> i feel like we're the forgotten part of town. it's unbelievable. >> reporter: in new jersey hundreds of residents have yet to see their battered homes. they live on barrier islands considered unsafe. some are being bused in for a two-hour glimpse. from here to brooklyn, sandy has never left. >> it's two weeks after sandy
7:18 am
hit. >> right. >> reporter: do you feel forgotten about? >> oh, yes. this neighborhood was totally off the grid. >> reporter: bearings was born in this house. she refuses to walk away now. are you going to stay? >> oh, yeah. i'm 62. i was born here. i will stay. i'm already starting to repair. >> reporter: another shift of utility workers is now about to get into these neighborhoods to do their work. but before the power in the house can be turned back on, in many cases homeowners have to replace the fuse box, water heater, systems of the house, so it's complicated. new york state alone has estimated that storm damage is $50 billion. that would make sandy the second most expensive storm in u.s. history after only katrina. a staggering figure. >> mark strassmann, thank you. time to show you some of this morning's headlines from around the globe. the jerusalem post says united nations is calling for restraint after israel fired a warning shot at syrian troops. it was retaliation for a mortar round that landed near an israeli military post. israeli officials say the mortar

7:31 am
praised petraeus while promoting her book about him. >> i don't think there's any senior military leader or anyone who's worked closely with him that wouldn't acknowledge he goes all into what he does. it's to help the organization succeed. >> reporter: the married mother of two and former high school homecoming queen had a lot in common with the retired four star general. both are west point graduates. both self-described fitness fanatics. in fact, just last month broadwell recounted her first interview with petraeus. a job that she says quickly turned into a race. >> i was told never to beat him. keep up with him and it's a rite of passage. but don't beat him because he's a guy, you're a girl, he's a celebrity, you're a soccer mom. in any case, he started elbowing me and it was over. >> reporter: what started out as a doctoral dissertation turned into a book. after broadwell discovered petraeus was in the running for cia director. the two spent countless hours together with broadwell even taking trips on petraeus's plane.
7:32 am
at petraeus's confirmation hearing in 2011, broadwell was seated just a few feet away from him and his wife. >> there's a good role model there who is values oriented, shows great example of taking initiative and other qualities that we should all be interested in. >> reporter: but on friday broadwell's 40th birthday came the news that would bring her hero crashing down. there was no sign of the author at her north carolina home this weekend. just this message scrawled on the driveway that reads, "dad hearts mom." for "cbs this morning," elaine quijano, new york. illinois congressman jesse jackson jr. may be about to resign just days after being re-elected. our chicago station reports jackson is negotiating a plea deal. he is accused of misusing campaign funds. jay levine reports jackson would give up his seat and may have to go to prison. >> reporter: sightings of jackson, once a rising star of the democratic party, have been rare since he began treatment for a bipolar disorder back in

june. a photo with a visiting colleague at the mayo clinic. another outside his home in washington. and video of him closing the blinds after spotting a cameraman. while the congressman splits his time between his washington, d.c., home and mayo in minnesota, high powered defense attorney dan webb, a former top prosecutor himself, has been the point person for jackson in talks with the justice department. negotiating a deal that would include jackson resigning for health reasons, pleading guilty to charges involving misuse of campaign funds, and paying back contributions that were converted to personal use such as home furnishings, improper travel and gifts. at least some jail time would appear to be inevitable. until now, constituents in his park city park suburban district have been understanding. he was overwhelmingly re-elected last week though some now appear less sympathetic. congressman jackson's father, reverend jesse jackson, declined to comment this weekend on the reported plea bargaining.
7:34 am
others who've seen him say jackson was still months away from even making a decision about returning to congress. >> to determine the extent to which he would be able to continue to serve or do something else. >> that decision may no longer be jackson's to make. while there's no firm deal yet, a source with direct knowledge expects it to be concluded by the end of the year. and a special election would then be scheduled to determine who serves the remainder of jackson's tenth term in congress. for cbs this morning, i'm jay levine in chicago. u.s. airlines say they are facing a major crisis. the worst pilot shortage in nearly half a century could affect you this morning. captain sully sullenberger tells us why now and why he believes the airlines are inventing this crisis. tomorrow director oliver stone and golfer nick faldo will be right here in studio 57 on "cbs this morning." golfer nick faldo will

>> u.s. airlines are facing a serious pilot shortage according to a story in today's "wall street journal." airline officials say more pilots are leaving the job and government rules require new pilots to have much more flight experience. >> so is this shortage a fact or just a scare tactic. with us now is peter greenberg and captain sully sullenberger. captain, is this a legitimate concern? >> good morning, charlie. this strikes me as a cynical effort on the part of some in the industry to cry wolf and use scare tactics in an intent to influence the faa when they write the final rule on pilot experience to weaken it, and this pilot experience requirement is one that's mandated by the congress. by the way. and unanimous votes in the house and senate, amazing accomplishment in this political environment to solve problems in the regional airline industry
7:41 am
that have been the result of a dozen years of crashes taking needless lives includie ing continental 3407 that took countless lives. whether we have one level of safety in the industry or not and we don't in some important ways means they will don't hire pilots who aren't fully experienced to be airline pilots and when they go into the seat as a regional pilot they are getting on the job training with you as the passenger in the back. until they have several thousand hours they haven't seen that many cycles the year, thunderstorms in the summer, and snow storms in the winter. if the first officer and i hadn't been as experienced if we had much less time we could not have had the same outcome and people would have died.
7:42 am
>> captain you sound like you're fired up about this. this "wall street journal" piece quotes a number of airline industry officials who say there's going to be a crisis, we won't have enough pilot, we won't be able to fly planes and you sound like that this then will create a crisis out of something for their own benefit. >> exactly. this is not a surprise to anyone. you know, we've known since december 2007 what the mandatory retirement age would be. we've known these rules were coming for several years. in fact, in congressional testimony this year regional airline association officials expect by august of 2012 which has passed their member airlines would be completely compliant with the airline transport license requirement in the new rule. they further say that out of their 18,000 regional pilots
7:43 am
only 100 might not be and that because they haven't yet reached the age of 23 which is one of the requirements. >> let me bring peter into this. can the airlines meet these requirements. >> they can and will. sully talks about 2007 rule that extends the mandatory retirement rule to 65. they have pilots who can fly until 65. the other issue is in terms of the economy a lot of airline pilots are taking early retirement because their pensions are frozen, they are not happy and are leaving in unprecedented numbers. let's go back to 2009 the national transportation safety board made a recommendation saying you need 1500 hours of experience before they will let you in the plane. the airlines have to field those people. the problem is it's not a surprise to the airline industry. they are acting as it's a big surprise. >> what do you differ from what sully said.
7:44 am
>> i don't. >> you're on the same page. >> absolutely. you can't create a crisis and say it's an economic impact when you've known about it for a long time and the rules are in place and sully would agree are minimal rules. if you see what the actual if you are headed out the door, this morning, yeah, bundle up. it's a little chilly out there. temperatures in the 30s and 40s looking nice and clear toward the golden gate bridge. we'll likely see passing clouds

it is 8:00. welcome back to "cbs this morning." as we learn the new details of general david petraeus's affair, you'll hear from his biographer and mistress paula broadwell. grover norquist got nearly all in congress to sign his pledge not to raise taxes. did that hurt or help the gop? we'll speak with him about america's budget mess. first here is a look at what's happening in the world and what we've been covering on "cbs this morning." >> sources say the sudden downfall of cia director david petraeus was rooted in jealousy. >> he made a huge mistake. he's paying for that right now. >> paula broadwell according to the "wall street journal" had access to classified information on her computer. doesn't that raise a red flag? >> the question is what was it and where did she get it. the fbi was satisfied she didn't
8:01 am
get it in petraeus. >> congress goes back to work tomorrow facing pressure to work out a deal. >> what's different this time is administration officials are already suggesting to congress that mr. obama is willing to let the deadline pass. >> new york state alone is estimated storm damage at $50 billion. that would make sandy the second most expensive storm in u.s. history after only katrina. airline officials say more pilots are leaving the job and government rules require new pilots to have much more flight experience. >> this strikes me as a cynical effort on the part of some in the industry to cry wolf. >> look at what happened in the pit. things got a little hot at the nascar race. nfl commissioner roger goodell said the high quality of hd tv is hurting the games because the experience of watching at home is so good. is it, though, say guys with wives? >> i'm charlie rose with gayle
8:02 am
king and norah o'donnell. investigators want to know why it took so long to learn of the affair. >> another woman said she received threatening e-mails from petraeus's mystery. bob ohr is in washington. >> all this started a few months ago when a woman in tampa got harassing e-mails she turned over to the fbi. they were tracked to petraeus biographer paula broadwell and subsequently turned up evidence that petraeus and broadwell had an extra-marital affair. petraeus says it all began after he took the top job and claims the affair ended about four months ago. the other woman is identified as 37-year-old jill kelly, said to have social connections to the central command in tampa which petraeus headed in late 2008 to mid 2010. kelly and her husband apparently
8:03 am
are friends of petraeus and his wife holly. petraeus says he was never romantically involved with kelly. officials say they found no evidence to refute that. in the end, nobody is expected to be charged with any crime in this scandal. fbi officials are telling us they simply did not alert congressional intelligence because they found no national security issues involved. jeff glor and i interviewed paula broadwell on public television. we asked about pet tray yags and his style of leadership. >> what's the most important thing you learned from him about leadership, whether it's a military leader, a corporate leader, a political leader? >> it's very simple, and i'd say that attitude is most important quality you can have. 90% of how things go is your attitude, right? 10% is chance. he really believes that. he's had many hurdles in his life. nobody thinks that because you look at this guy with this meteoric career.
8:04 am
there have been many assignments where people thought he was put out to pasture, where he didn't get his first choice, not many, a handful. people thought he would be put to pasture and kept from running for office. he's so excited. he's a professor at heart. there are intellectual folks think a different way about problems. he's pretty happy where he's at. >> presidential run? >> you didn't see the jon stewart show? my husband said i should say yes so we'd sell more books. but no, he's not going to run. >> never? >> he's not interested in politics. he feels he would have to yield his principals and values in the primary to win and he's not willing to do that. >> when the two of you see that interview and others, what was your impression? >> i was struck by listening to the whole interview. he said he feels that he would have to compromise.
8:05 am
she speaks about his feelings. >> makes you wonder how does she know about his feelings? does she know more than she's apparently telling? how much does she really know? what was your impression of her? >> my first impression is, normally you think of someone with that kind of spirit, walter isaacson would be writing the biography. she clearly had a interesting background, west point graduate, fitness expert. all kind of reasons to bring together some kind of commonality. >> she was not a journalist or author but she gained this extraordinary access. >> of which no one else had had. >> yeah, exactly. >> okay. president obama is holding meetings this week to work on a deal that would avert the fiscal cliff. those tax increases and spending cuts may kick in 50 days from now. bill plante is at the white house and joins us with the latest on that. bill, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, gayle. that's right. the president meets with
8:06 am
business, labor, he'll talk to congressional leaders on friday and take his case to the country after thanksgiving probably. over the weekend, democrats and republicans both suggested that maybe they have the outline of a deal. democrats seem willing to cut some entitlement spending. republicans after losing the white house and losing members in both houses of congress seem to be expressing a more conciliatory tone about revenue increases. but the president made it clear on friday that after campaigning on the issue, he believes he now has a mandate to demand that the rich pay higher taxes or at least a higher share. speaker boehner told the house republicans that after the election, the mandate from the american people is to work together even if it means additional revenues. but republicans want to get those revenues through tax reform. the big difference this time i think is that administration officials are suggesting to members of congress that mr. obama is willing to let the deadline pass, to let things go
8:07 am
over the cliff if he can't get a deal that he wants. it's a strong negotiating tool. charlie, norah, gayle? >> that's right, bill plante, thank you. a powerful explosion devastated a neighborhood in indianapolis over the weekend. two homes were left in pieces and a fire damaged dozens more. fire officials are trying to figure out the cause of the blast. >> reporter: two people were killed by the massive blast that was heard for miles and left this indianapolis neighborhood littered with debris. >> my first thought is a bomb. >> reporter: in every direction, walls crumbled and windows shattered. nearly three dozen homes were damaged or destroyed. >> there are homes that will have to be torn down. and there are homes that can be inhabited within the next day or so, but we're examining each and every one of them. >> reporter: the fiery explosion happened around 11:00 p.m. saturday causing some 200 residents to flee into the night. seven were injured. >> the house probably felt like it moved a foot or so, and all
8:08 am
we could do was get out of here. >> reporter: kurt mcdonald was watching tv when the last rocked his house. >> we got up, ran outside, there was insulation falling down like snow. >> reporter: mcdonald jumped in to help. >> we heard people yelling. we went in and pulled out two daughters. the husband was trapped under a lot of debris. got him out. the wife was trapped in a recliner. finally got her out. >> reporter: while some residents speculated a gas leak led to the explosion, the gas company says according to their logs there were no problems reported. as residents return to assess the damage, investigators say it could be weeks before they find a cause. for "cbs this morning," terrell brown, new york.

president oma m president obama meets w president obama meets with congressional leaders on friday to discuss the upcoming fiscal cliff. as we showed you earlier, several republicans in congress say there is momentum to make a deal before the end of the year. >> grover norquist founded americans for tax reform led the conservative push against any tax increase. he rejects the idea that voters gave the president a mandate on election day. he joins us now. welcome. >> welcome. good to be with you. >> listening to people like bill kristol and the speaker of the house john boehner, it seems they're prepared and think you and the republican party ought to be prepared to accept some action on the revenue side. >> well, what speaker boehner said before the election was they're not raising marginal tax rates. what he said in his presentation was we're not raising marginal tax rates. he is in favor of more revenue from economic growth. i certainly agree with him on that. if we had a recovery -- >> grover, i don't think he's
8:15 am
limiting it to growth, is he? hasn't he suggested there are other ways in terms of looking attacks reform to produce more revenue other than simply the economic growth? >> in his presentation he's always referred to gref news coming from growth that tax reform can give you. i know the democrats would like to see tax increases on the american people. the position that pro-growth advocates have, taxpayer advocates is let's have more people working, that requires lower marginal tax rates, not higher. what obama wants to do is exactly what would most damage job creation in mayor which is why two years ago he didn't do it. >> sounds like to me you're not changing your attitude one bit. >> we had an election. the committee is committed to keeping taxes low. the president was re-elected that you should vote against
8:16 am
romney. he won by two points. he didn't make the case we should have higher taxes and higher spending. he kind of sounded like the opposite. >> i'm not sure that's what the president called mrks grover. that's not the debate that was had. the debate he had, he said very clearly throughout the debate that the wealthiest americans should pay more. and he won eight of the nine battleground states, and republicans failed to reclaim the white house or the senate. what about the exit polls that show a broad support for raising taxes on the wealthiest americans. are you wrong? >> well, two things. there are also polls that say 63% of people are against raising taxes. >> why didn't people then vote obama out of office? >> you saw those ads that suggested romney gave people cancer in ohio for months and months unanswered. you can trash an individual and get them to vote against him. again, where we had an election, there are 30 republican
8:17 am
governors, and they're running campaigns against raising taxes and in favor of frankly phasing out the income tax in north carolina and kansas and oklahoma. >> those are state issues. speaker boehner said clearly -- >> the issues are clear -- >> we're willing to accept new revenue under the right conditions. would you accept new revenue and would members that have signed your no-tax pledge be allowed to accept new revenue? >> of course, the pledge is to the american people, not to me. they don't need my permission to vote any way. they made a commitment to the people in their state. you can get more revenue through economic growth if you grow at 4% a year instead of 2% a year. the government will get $5 trillion in additional revenue. i'd rather do growth than raise taxes which slows the economy and damages things. obama is not interested in taxing the rich. he e admits there's no money there. he runs a $6.7 trillion debt
8:18 am
assuming he raises taxes on high income people. his goal is to raise energy taxes on the middle class, not something mentioned during the campaign. >> grover, we're looking at a fiscal crisis here and a fiscal cliff. most of people are saying this is serious and we've got to have serious negotiations and everything has to be on the table. but you seem to be resisting that. what do you think happens if the fiscal cliff happens as a reality and this economy goes over the cliff? >> two things. the fiscal cliff is a tax increase of $500 billion. we had exactly the same scenario two years ago that we had today. obama huffed and puffed and threatened to let us go off the fiscal cliff. at the end of the day, cooler heads prevailed and all of the tax cuts were continued for two years. in 2011 obama said the world would end, we should pass around smelling salt. we got a debt ceiling agreement, we cut spending, didn't raise
8:19 am
taxes. we didn't cut taxes as much as the republicans wanted. the ryan plan would have reduced obama's overspending by $6 trillion. we only got $2.5 trillion in restraint. that's a compromise. the republicans have already compromised. >> okay, grover, thank you. we are out of time. we appreciate you being here. we'll be right back. >> announcer: this portion of "cbs this morning" sponsored by hershey's air delight. it just might make you melt. ,,,,

welcome back to cbs "this morning." filmmaker ken burns spent dep kids a bringing america's past to life. >> a new film "the central park five" is a different documentary. it brought him a different sort of attention, a subpoena from the city of new york. >> the case was horrific. a young woman left for dead, brutally beaten and raped in new york's central park. the victim could not remember the attack. five african-american teenagers were charged and convicted. there were video-taped confessions. >> getting her to keep her down. >> police said they were in the park wilding or creating mayhem just for kicks. except the story wasn't true. >> there have been many questions raised about the conviction of five defendants
8:31 am
for the rape of a female jogger. >> in 2002, 12 years after the trials, matias reyes a convicted sex offender confessed. he said he acted alone and dna evidence confirmed his involvement. when the manhattan d.a. took another look at the case he found fault with the original confessions. the convictions were vacated. most of the teenagers now men served their sentences. lau lawsuits came in. >> a lot of people didn't do their jobs, reporters, police, prosecutors, defense lawyers. >> to defend against lawsuit the city of new york wants burns to turn over interviews he did with the men and their families. burns has refused. citing protection under new york's shield law designed to protect journalist source. the film opens in theaters on
8:32 am
november 23rd. for cbs "this morning" i'm jeff glor, new york. >> ken burns is with us now along witness john miller who covered this case as a very young reporter. later became an nypd commissioner. this is a different kind of film four. >> it's different in one way. in made it with my daughter sarah burns and her husband. there's no narration in this. it's the same old same old. dealing with race again at the heart of our story of your nation. thomas jefferson said all men are created equals but oops he owns 100 people. >> the suggestion is you have crossed the line into advocacy. >> well, that's ridiculous. this is probably the straightest and most journalistic film we ever made. no narration. we don't have a chance to do anything.
8:33 am
we got one adjective that says rape. these kids were never allowed to have their humanity brought forward. they were wilders. they were part of a wolfpack. all we said is who are you? who censor >> before we get to that, why don't you hand it over? >> i think it's part of journalism. these are our privileged conversations. the state every time they want to delay something, let's remember this civil suit is ten years old after 13 years of justice denied. they are now, justice delayed which we know is justice denied. we don't want to be part of the city's fishing expedition, a going after material that's not material to this particular suit. we made a film about them. we talked to them. we think it's a good film. the cannes film festival does.
8:34 am
>> what does the nypd think? >> the nypd did its own internal investigation which found none of the detectives did anything improper. that was done by a former prosecutor, a former deputy commissioner and a couple of other officials. the district attorney's investigation re-investigated the case found they had the wrong people. but when you get to the detectives, charlie, the detectives say why weren't we interviewed in the d.a.'s investigation, why was no witness interviews. they believe these kids had something to do with the assault and they don't believe that they fed them lines or tricked them into confessing and they are very frustrated they weren't allowed to be part of the film. they wanted to tell their story. >> we did ask -- >> repeatedly. there's not a detective on this case who says they didn't call 50 times. >> we would love to have them involved. but let's remember that robert
8:35 am
morganthal assigned two new detectives to investigate this. they produced report that mistakes were made by the prosecutors and cops. they asked and joined with the defense to ask a judge to vacate the conviction. here's what the final story is about what happened that night with regard to trap. maybe there are other things up in the air but what happened is these kids were innocent and they didn't do it and spent time in jail for a crime they didn't commit and now ten years later in the midst of trying to document this, in the mid-of trying to release the film, in the mid-of the kids trying to get on with their lives, they are men in the 30s now the city of new york somehow takes its time to decide they will throw a monkey wrench into our process and say oh, give us all your stuff. this is a scar on the city of new york. >> we come back to each one of us had more than 20 years experience. each one of us had investigated
8:36 am
scores of assaults and murders and nobody in the process of the re-investigation sat down and said what happened that day, what's your understanding of this, what occurred and they really believe that the fact that the city indemnified this. if you lose this lawsuit you're covered but not allowed to talk. they are barred from talk. they are upset not just at the documentary but the investigation they didn't have their say. >> when we talk about all that experience it's not unreasonable they want to think that these kids out in central park had anything to do with this brutal rape. we want them to be involved with that. but you think their fighting sense would go off for a thousand different reasons. they were some other place when did it. it was a bloody crime scene. there's nothing on the boys from the crime scene. they didn't know each other. they spent all this time in
8:37 am
prison not asking for parole. the film is kind of a polygraph. you see these were good kids. >> they had no criminal record yet they confessed. you said in your documentary once you confess that trumps everything. that trumps dna and evidence. >> let's talk about that. we want our detectives to be really good at this, to ask tough questions, to lie and trick. but these are kids, 14, 15, developmentally challenged 16-year-old tried as an adult. look, gayle we you know didn't do it. you're a good kid. but ken is saying you did do it. if you just say that you saw him do it, a circular firing squad we all end up in jail and then of course the confessions trump everything. here we are 13 years later the truth comes out. the truth comes out and now we have another ten years where we're still arguing about it.
8:38 am
mayor c omkoch said it was the e of the century. the language of the new york press was the language of the jim crow pro press of the early 20th century and late 19th-century not of a progressive city. we have a chance to heal this. why are we not moving swiftly toward some sort of closure and justice, not just closure for the five. >> in terms of where we should go and why are we not going? >> to me as a journalist looking at this the shock part is the city hasn't settled the case. whatever the final story turns out to be the district attorney has joined in a motion and said they didn't do it. the idea that they are stretching this out for what's approaching a decade is stunning. in the end it's probably only going to cost them morgan. >> in the documentary you point out the innocence didn't get the attention like the conviction did. you're trying to change that. >> you know what happens my daughter sarah said it best.
8:39 am
she said when it was done she was outraged and we hope that everyone who sees this film or hears about this case is outraged and so it's going to open and then be on tv next year and we want everybody to look at it and see how far the inability to admit a mistake can cause tragedy in the life of people and cities because -- >> you have the last word on that ken burns. thank you very much. i you know can go on. >> we can have several parts. >> "the central park five" opens next friday. >> we're taking the stress out of thanksgiving. a,,,,
